CD Sundays Christmas

I have rarely entered the CD Sunday challenge due to lack of time, but this week I found I had a few spare minutes and already had some images printed off. The challenge is usually anything goes but this week they are looking for Christmassy cards!

I had a couple of images left fom a page I had printed out earlier in the year from Joanna Sheen's Victorian christmas CD. This is one of the smaller images. I mounted it on to some icy blue glitter paper and then a white mat, which I wrapped with some matching ribbon. It was going to be added to a white card blank but it just looked too stark so I stamped some snowflakes round the edge.I added a couple of die cut glitter snowflakes which were lurking on my desk, and a pale blue gem in the middle.

I've actually written and sent all my cards this year so I'm getting a head start on next year's!

Nutty but Nice!

Welcome to the new challenge at Make My Monday, a really easy one this week - "Christmas". I used an Art Impressions stamp set from the Stamptember range at SSS.

I stamped onto kraft card and colored with pencils. Some scraps of glittery ribbon and a sprig of gold holly finished it off. 

I'm sure you're all well ahead with your Christmas cards, but if not, there's lots of inspiration on the challenge blog.

A Cute Christmas card!

Helen has chosen Cute Christmas as the theme for the new challenge at Cardz for Galz.
I first saw a card made with this stamp by Mama Elephant at the Make It Show back in February but it had sold out. I managed to get it later online but I have only just  inked it up.

I coloured the kitties in with Promarkers and added glitter to the baubles and hats. Sadly it doesn't show in the photo. The snowflakes are punched out of white glitter paper with an old Martha Stewart punch.

 I hope to see your makes in the gallery and if you would like to join our friendly team we are having a DT call, full details on the blog.

Candy Canes

It's time for the Christmas challenge at Happy Little Stampers - the last one before the big day so I hope you're well on the way to getting all your cards made.

As always it is Anything Goes but you can use the optional twist of Candy Canes.

I always try to use the twist but thought I might have to miss it this month as I didn't think I had a candy cane stamp or die. However one of the recent magazine freebies had a small candy cane stamp which I used.

As it was quite a small stamp I did multiple stamping after masking of the sentiment, which was also a magazine freebie.The images are coloured in with Promarkers.

There are some super makes from the rest of the DT over on the challenge blog.

Christmas Critters

Dawn has chosen Christmas Critters as the theme for the next two weeks at Cardz for Guyz. 

This House Mouse stamp has been used before but only once so it was time for another airing. Once stamped, coloured, cut out and mounted on the plaid paper I thought it looked a bit stark so added some sequins, think I might have overdone them though!

I hope you can join us this week and make a masculine card. We also have a DT call - check the blog for details.

Watercolour "Selfie"

It's the first of the month (in Australia) so time for the last challenge of the year for Happy Little Stampers Watercolour Challenge, and of course the optional twist is Christmas!


I used a new set of stamps from MFT that really appealed to me called Christmas sELFies.
I thought the upside down elf quite cute.

I coloured him with Zig watercolour pens with some added glitter. I rounded the corners to hide a snudge but I could have said for added interest!

I hope to see you joining in after checking out all the inspiration on the challenge blog.

November Rudolph Day

Well here we are at the last Rudolph Day for 2019. I can't believe how quickly this year has gone, mind you I think I say that every year!

For this card I stamped and heat embossed all the images on some blue background paper. It actually has a very faint snowflake pattern on it. The stamps are from a recent issue of Creative Stamping.

Christmas Vellum

The new challenge at Make My Monday is to use vellum. I knew I had some printed Christmas vellum but it took me a little while to find it, then I had to decide how to use it. All this took longer than making the card!

I finally decide on using just a wrap of the vellum and added some gold diecuts. There's lots more inspiration on the challenge blog so do go and check it out.

Get Ready for Christmas!

It's time for a new challenge at Cardz for Galz and I chose the theme "Get ready for Christmas". Hopefully you're all already doing this!

I have used a Woodware stamp that has been languishing unloved in my Christmas stash. I decided to just stamp it in gold and leave it uncoloured, but mounted on top of a strip of gold glitter card.

Then I made a second more colourful version.

I'm looking forward to seeing all your makes too.
I’m also joining in at Addicted to Stamps and More.

Icy Cold

Welcome to another challenge at Cardz for Guyz where we want to see your Icy Cold creations suitable for the males in your life.

I have used an old favourite from Stampin Up called Polar Partybut I forgot that the sentiment doesn't stamp very well. I'll have to put a sentiment on top before I use it! I used some icy blue glitter paper to cut the snowflake border and some paper with snowflakes on to back the images.

I hopeto see you joining in to help with your Christmas card stash.
